Even More Made Up Mom's Demand Numbers

Just yesterday morning I posted a bit on how MDA-IL inflated numbers by 5x to make their support seem more than it really is. 

Well apparently they're taking direction from the higher ups as Shannon Watts throws out more BS:
THIS IS WHAT CHANGE LOOKS LIKE: Earlier today, more than 1,000 moms, dads, survivors and citizens marched across the Brooklyn Bridge to take a stand for gun sense.
Again, Bullcrap.  almost no photos of the marching crowd outside of a few closeups.  These are the closest I could find:

See that brown sign top left?  Here it is from the front. The VERY front of the crowd:


A bunched up shot showing maybe 200 people:

Even if they did get 1000 people from 'across the country', they demonstrated in a city of over 8 million people not even counting the MSA (near 20 million) and THIS is the best they could do? How pathetic is that? This is a group that just got tens of millions from their financier Bloomberg (who didn't show, btw), they couldn't afford a cameraman?  IGOLD gets a dozen professionals, volunteers, and supporters on the bridge along the march alone to get crowd shots. Wonder if a big chunk of that money is being used to bus in 'activists', armed, private security and 'non-salary' compensation for Shannon.

But I digress, there's nowhere near '1000' people in any way, shape, or form but it sure sounds impressive, doesn't it?  Much better than the real numbers which are little more than an enhanced tour group.

Also from some of the shots I saw the "Parade" route was flanked by NYPD.

Wanna bet that Bloomey pulled his usual corrupt strings and got the city of New York to foot the bill for his little protest?

It does not matter if they had a million marchers or every other citizen, except me.

All of the BORs is in force and protects citizens like me from the government and from the whims of popular opinion (gun control is clearly not that popular).

Having these basic protections are why we have a Constitutional Republic, not a democracy. If you don't like it, you can move to North Korea.

The question that I have is how many of the people that attended received money for their attendance? I suspect that there is no way to get that numbers, but it probably is not 0.

We know that most of those present for the NRA AM protest had their travel and rooms paid for. I wouldn't be surprised if it was the same for this group.
